I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior in March 1969 and within a few weeks I knew God wanted me to preach. I preached my first sermon in September of 1969 and have been preaching ever since. In 2003 the Lord burdened me to begin replacing missionaries when they came home on furlough. My church was supporting 70 missionaries at $100.00 a month and I would see their heartbreak as they watched their churches fall apart while they were on furlough. In September 2004 we began deputation and have been replacing missionaries since 2006. We recently finished our eighth replacement and look forward to many more.
